27 ¶ And when Jesus departed thence, two blind men followed him, crying, and saying, Thou Son of David, have mercy on us.
27 Verse 27. Son of David] This was the same as if they had
called him Messiah. Two things here are worthy of remark: 1st.
That it was a generally received opinion at this time in Judea,
that the Messiah should be son of David. (.) 2dly. That
Jesus Christ was generally and incontestably acknowledged as
coming from this stock. .
Have mercy on us.] That man has already a measure of heavenly
light who knows that he has no merit; that his cry should be a cry
for mercy; that he must be fervent, and that in praying he must
follow Jesus Christ as the true Messiah, the son of David,
expected from heaven.
